• Discovering the spiritual heartland of Bhutan – a plethora of very old and sacred Buddhist temples
• Burning Lake or Mebar Tsho
• Farm houses, villages, ancient trails, fields of buckwheat, rice, potatoes and orchards, meadows, and forests
• Meet local people, their lifestyle, local food and beverages
• Trout laden rivers
We follow the course of Chamkhar Chhu, a river rich in trout, and wade our way through villages, visiting temples, sacred sites, observing farm life, mingling with people in a region described as the ‘cultural heartland’ of Bhutan. The temples are very old, deemed extremely sacred, as they were built or patronized by the greatest masters in Vajrayana Buddhism. Most of all, the trek is an occasion to absorb the rejuvenating physical beauty of landscapes and the peaceful rhythm of life there. We feel the deep yet inexplicable connection between spirituality and everyday life.
